Mold Assessments and Clearance Documents
The purpose of a mold assessment is to discover mold growth, and/or conditions that are likely to facilitate mold growth. In accordance with NY State Labor Law Chapter 551 Article 32, the assessment consists of a visual inspection of the property in order to prepare a specific mold remediation plan. This plan is produced for your mold removal contractor to use for the development of their work plan. Upon completion of the mold removal, the inspector will return to issue a clearance document stating that all visual signs of mold have been removed, that mold is unlikely to return, and that the work was done in compliance with the remediation plan.
When to Look for Mold:
- Soon after purchasing your home
- Once per year
- Anytime you notice moisture stains or a damp odor
- Stains on your attic sheeting
We include a FREE one year follow up visit after the initial assessment.
Mold Remediation Process:
In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, New York State passed a Customer Protection Law that outlines the mold remediation process into three simple steps:
STEP 1 — MOLD ASSESSOR VISIT
STEP 2 — PICK A REMEDIATION CONTRACTOR
STEP 3 — MOLD ASSESSOR RETURNS
STEPS 1 & 3 ARE HANDLED BY ALL COUNTY HOME INSPECTIONS.
We, as Licensed Mold Assessors, inspect for mold. If found, we will create a site-specific mold remediation plan.
Pick a Mold Remediation Contractor. Give them the site-specific plan. Get estimate and complete the work.
We’ll come back to verify the mold remediation was completed and issue a clearnce document.
